Customs authorities have strengthened inspections of arriving passengers ahead of the PyeongChang Olympic Games. Up to 20 percent of all inbound passengers are now subject to customs inspections, nearly seven times more than usual. Some 200 more officials have been dispatched to conduct inspections.

[Soundbite] Moon Mi-ho(Incheon Customs) : "Our priority is on blocking dangerous items to prevent terrorism. The arrivals section is expected to be congested, so we ask the public for cooperation."
